one of the executioners severed his be id from

The spectators testified their horror In sighs,

enacted across the water. On January 21, 17!Hi,
nt eight o'clock in the morning, Louis XVI
entered the carriage In which be was to be con

two hours in reaching the pluco appointed,

When the carriage stopped at tho scaffold the

On the Mth ultimo the It oyal Oeographical
Society reconimencca Its meetings in London for
the season, Sir Roderick Murehlson presiding.
Captain Hurton read a paper "Oa the T resent
Stuteof Knowledge Respecting the Source of the
Nile," lu w hh h he railed in question many of tb.3
statements and Inferences that had been m ule by
l uptMin Spekc. He denied, In the first Instance,
the ixisti nee of so I .life a lake as tho Victoria
Nj nna where Captain Spoke bad described it to
be. and consequen iy he disputed that the Nile
took its Koiii'C lioin tli.it lake.
lie asslgtied social f.a, ins for disbelieving
tliut there was sin It r lake, lie ass -rted that the
It vel ol tho lake was not sutli lentlv li gh lor the
sour' e of so huge u river, and Ir mi the testimony
ot tlio Arabs, a ronl pised throiiti whit w is
said to lie tlif n litre ol the lake. Anolh. r ro l-on
why he lb ngb' the Ny.m.a could not lu '.ho
source of the Nile, was that the periods of the
nlkgeil gtcnte-t elevation of the water did not
corn sp, nd Willi the overllow ot linn river.
T he word Nyann is npp'led by the African
tiibes to any body of water, Nva.a and Nynna
being Inditlin ntly used with tho same siguilic
tion. The Mountains of the Moon, which were
luid down some of Captain Spekc's early map,
bud, he said, really no existence, or nt least there
was no runt'c of mountains ot such a magnitude
es had been dcstrib d. 1 lie lunar mount tins
wero represented to bo of tlm lorm of a horie
shoe, and to enclose the north end of the LV(0
Targaiie.kii, some ol' the moiiiitmns being said
to I e ten thousand feet hiir.li. Ho did not de.iy
that Ihi re were some bills mi tba' direction, but
tiny were not continuous, and Captain linrton
contemn d that from the north of that
Inke a river Hows into other lakes to the north
wards, and finally Into the Nile; the Luke Tanga
nyika, sitiiu'cd much further to tho northwest,
Icing the source from which the chief waters of
Hie Nile are derived, lie denied, uowovnr, that
tliut or any river took Its source from a lako, the
ri al soiitces of the Nile being the rivers that fed
the lake from which the stream Issues. Capt iln
llurion mid he was fur from wishing to detract
from the great merit which was due to dipt lin
Spt ke as nn intelligent and adventurous explorer,
but he thoiicht it whs desirable that further ex-
loratiwn should lie mado to settle tne question of
11. e sources ot tlio no( which lie eonsioeieu nun
rot yet been determined, lie Inclined to think
that a hike situated to ihe norlieastol thercpofed
Victoria Nyan. i is the source ol the v bite Nile,
nnd the Assnara. which flows from it. was mis
taken by Captain Speku lor a tributary, when it
Is, in fact, the main stream.
Dr. Llvinirstiine confirmed some of Captain
Burton's views respecting Lake T.iniraiieik i. lie
mid when traveling to the westward of that lake
he 6aw several rivers flowing towards it from a
high plateau upwards of two thousand feet high.
He nstccd with Cantam Burton us to tho eeiiernl
siunilicaiion of the word Nyanzu, nnd he said he
hud Intended to cull the Luke Nyaza by that
name, but finding thnt the latter term had been
used, he did not wi-h to chango it. Tho north of
l.tike Nva.a had not been explored, owing to the
borders being in possc-slon of hostile tribes; but
Dr. Livingstone considered it not improbable that
a river (lowed from it ino thu more northern
lakes. 11c was of opinion that thn Nile originated
from several hikes in that part of Africa, und that
it could not be traced to any ono source.
Mr. Ualton defended the statements of Captain
Spcke, and contended that tho objection to the
LiihoNyaiiza being the source of the Nile, founded
on its low Itvel, was removed by the knowlodgo
of the fact that the instrument with which tho
level was taken was very imperfect, und could
not lie depended on.
A letter from M. dn Chaillu to Sir Roderick
JIurcliison was read, in which ho stated that he
wus about to proceed into the interior of Africa.
He purposcJ pursuing the lino of the equator,
until ho came to some largo rivor flowing north
wurds, which he intended to follow till it reached
the Mediterranean, and he hoped in that manner
to come to tho mouth of the Nile.
He was taking with him one hundred people,
forty ol whom would bo employed in carrying
his guns and ammunition, of which be hoped to
make great use. lie said ho had caught three
gorillas, w hich he Intended to have sent alive to
this country, lint two of them had died. Tho
other had been shipped to Knglund, and ho hoped
it would arrive safely. Ho has forwarded also
iome fine skeletons' of gorillas and many other
specimens of natural history.

and on which It stakds. This Is a fee elmphi. but subioct

Iinuiediuieiy on going Into operation this company wlf
be 1b the receipt of say IX barrels o f oil per day, wl.L-ta
al S1U (It Is row selling at Hi), will be a dally income
$UWi, or $lso,lotl rcr annum, mauling tho company
make dlvlc'snJs of not less than three percent perm .nil
on the investment from the bej-tuniug, with a good prot
pect of a Urge Increase.
It li, bell o.l that no oil company has been firmed with
more certain prospects of suece-s. Only a limited por
tion ol the stock Is ottered at .", as tl.e corporaiura confl-di-ttly
bell, vc that 111 a very short time tho stock will bo
word much moi-f than par.
As ihe compnry relies mainly on tho (lrst described
property tor their ptesent Income, the following report,
made by a committee of gentlemen appointed to make tuo
examination, Is slibnllt. d
The untlersl;u ed couiuilttee, appointed to examine the
property ot the McCuntock Iteserve Oil Company, respi-ot-lullv
1 hut they nave thoroughly examined the John Mo'iln
tock Iteserve, situated at Uie junction of Oil Creek and
Cherrv lltln. The property slocuted ou a beauiil il blulf,
admlrubly adapted to boring. There are six wells finished
and In progress. One well, which hail been yielding ah.ut
forty t arrels oally.had sui'd'nty Increased tonne hundred
and forty barrels, and was flowing at about this rate on
our visit. Another well, reprc ser.tO'l as yield ug seventy
five baireis, v,as pumping at the rate of elghtv to ninety
barreN, and the Intelligent superintendent and less, o was
sanguire In tho expe laron that in a short time it srould
become a flowing well, and tive much larger yield.
These two vtclis art. but a few weeks old, aud have every
Indication of bcoomlng very large walla.
1 bree other wells are lu process of boring, and will bo
finished on cr before the first of January; and from the
Indications, we believe they will all bo largely prodnutive.
One other well was jti,t commenced, aud will bo pushed
rapidly to completion.
The whole of the properly, except the half aero on whloh
the homestead stands, has been lessed, and It In tne liandi
of espetlenc. d and energetic men, who wl 1 spare no pina
or expeuee to develop the property irk thu best manner, aud
In the shor est possible limo.
The d.rrlrkt, h0uc, engines, tools, etc , are all new,
aud the bet i f their kind, aud In excellent order, giving
evldej.ee ol the eareful supervision of tbeowuersof the
We have no doubt that the Company's Interest one
fourth roialtynow about (Iftv-flve barrels perday, which
at $10 Is w.ll be greatly increased by tho flr.t of
January next ; and as Ihe land will admit of twenty wells
being bond upon It, a good Idea may be formed of the
Immense yield wl.iihv.lll result vtheaall are m.Uhid.
The hcu.eiiead occupies half an acre from which the
Company will r. c ue three I. urtl.s of Ihe ol' If th.y work
It, and wi Ith your couimitieo strongly recommends; II
would not be suri'rl.ll.g it mis Uitcre.t atone should, before
the ex plratiou ol a ear, rvalue au Income of several kxa
tlred bitriets p.r 4 ay.
1 he euti.e P'opert.v consists of a little over rour a 'res,
with a superior dwelling and good bara upon it. Krom
Its proximity lo Cherrv ttun. and it pooullar location,
together with the fact that tlie property na not been fuuiut
to be athcttd by other wells in the Immediate nelghbor
h, od, we are bu to ihe conviction mat It Is one ol the mott
us.i.nbie i open ies on oil Cfevk.
